2014 Preview: Listen Out For #6 – GEMS

4 Dec


Throughout 2013, with each new track they released online, Washington DC duo GEMS delighted and enchanted in equal measure. Evidently they cannot make music that is anything less than heart-meltingly drop-dead gorgeous and ethereal.

Their sublimely cool and floaty dream pop has enraptured many a soul over the last few months, with blogs and listeners falling over themselves to drool at their feet of icy melody. We’re no different. The vocals are sweet and breathless, a whispered caress on a smooth gossamer breeze of synths and electronic beats. Weightless and elegant, like moments of purity handed down from above, unsullied and unspoiled for us to enjoy and bathe in their beauty.

The Medusa EP collates their tracks from the preceding months into one blissful listen of style, grace and soft focus dreaminess. Their tracks are like billowing lace curtains by an open window with gentle undulations reaching softly into the room, touching your ears like a kiss from a butterfly.

Yeah, it’s pretty lovely and with any luck GEMS will be able to build on a mesmeric EP and solid 2013 and rise up further into the clouds, maybe even with an album, next year.
